Just had some pull-back bars put on my 02 Classic. I went to the shop to set them in what I think will be the right position, but , of course, can't be sure til I ride it. Judging by the service manual, it's a genuine pain in the arse to get to the area to loosen/tighten the bars. Are there any short cuts or is it just something that you have to dive in all the way if you want to change the position? Thanks!!

You can just yank at them, but if the bars aren't torqued down tight enough that this will work, imo ain't safe.
The procedure for removing the clamp cover's explain in detail in here. Do a search. Takes half an hour when you know what you're doing.

Removing the Nacelle is no big deal, you should'nt have to remove it completly just enough to remove the handle bar shroud. The service manual has an explanation in detail.

Take the headlight trim ring off, remove the screws from the rubber grommets around the headlight housing that attach it to your nacelle.
The headlight will drop out, cover your 'mudguard', we call em, with a rag and let the headlight rest on it. (or pull the connectors and remove it)

NOW, the strip that goes along the top of the nacelle, the bit that covers the join between the two halves, remove the SMALL speed nut at the FRONT inside the nacelle. lift that strip up and off.
Get a star screwdriver and LOOSEN the screw that holds the handlebar clampcover, DO NOT REMOVE! You should be able to twist the handlebar clamp cover up and around the handlebar clamp bracket.
Watch you don't tighten the Speed nut on that top strip too tight when you redo it, it can snap the small pin it screws onto easily.
